Lattice Lace Stole
Lace is much more difficult to work when you’ve got free-form patterns and lots of curvy lines to work. Correspondingly, short graceful geometric lines are easily followed and easier to track and correct (if necessary) while you’re working them. So this dramatic piece, disciplined and precise, is simpler to work than it appears. The two halves are worked separately so that the front edges match as you wear it, and then grafted together at the middle back. The little jagged edging is worked first, then you pick up the stitches along its edge and work up from there.
